<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Try it Editor - GetHow</title>
<style type="text/css">
table { margin: 0 auto; } 
textarea, iframe { width: 500px; height: 500px; }
.link { font-family: Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif; font-weight: bold; font-size: 12px; color: #008000; }
.h1 { color: #008000; }
</style>
</head>

<body>
<center><h1>TRY IT EDITOR - GETHOW</h1></center><center>
<form id="tryitform" name="tryitform" action="result.php" target="view" method="post">
